A bottom of the table clash, between arguably the two worst sides this season, means when KKR and RR take on each other, it’s going to be a match with hardly any consequences. With just 8 points and 6 points respectively from the 10 matches the two sides have contested in each, it is more than a safe statement to say that the season is all but over for both the franchisees.

Pitch Report

On a surface that will see the ball have some pace, swing and bounce before eventually turning into a good batting pitch, we expect KKR’s slightly stronger batting unit to win the match for their side. Russell will be extremely tough to contain for Kulkarni and Unadkat and that slight edge in the lower middle-order is what could turn this encounter KKR’s way.

As far as the matches the two sides have met in till date, there’s been absolutely nothing to pull apart the two. In the 20 encounters between the two, KKR have won 10 of them with Rajasthan coming out on top 9 times while one match ended in a no result.

Earlier this season, the two sides had met on April 8 in the 21st clash of the league which had seen KKR register an 8-wicket win. The Sawai Mansingh Stadium has failed to provide the solitude needed for the Royals and that encounter was the same with Chris Lynn (51) and Sunil Narine (47) putting on a 91-run stand for the opening stand in 8.3 overs.
